High rates of depression, anxiety, marital dissatisfaction and legendary issues related to identity for new mothers are serious health concerns, not simply because of the economic consequence but also the personal toll. At this very moment there is a parallel call for consumer response to the Maternal and Child Health - now called - Family and Child Health Services. Yet, there is an overemphasis on the child almost to the exclusion of mothers, fathers and families. There needs to be serious improvement to these services as they are a critical touchstone between families and the health and social support systems. Please let them know what you think and pass on through your networks.
Best, Joan Garvan
